I am 70 now. I have been a builder for over 50 years and have done my bit for this country. About 15 years ago I retired from contracting and started consulting. I just thought that it would be an appointment here and there but instead the next 10 years I worked 70 hrs/ week helping people with building problems.
For the past few years I have been slowing down and this will continue. I have other things to live for, my wife, four children and ten grandchildren are more than enough to keep me busy, in addition to spending my time in the most beautiful beach house in Tasmania.
So whilst it is not adios yet, sooner or later it will be.
